The White House has yanked the press credentials of CNN's Jim Acosta, accusing the correspondent of "placing his hands on a young woman" trying to take away his microphone as he questioned the president. Acosta calls that a "lie." Now a related controversy has emerged regarding video of the incident, with critics accusing the White House of releasing a "doctored" version. Details on that and related developments:
- The incident: As Acosta presses Trump Wednesday about his language regarding the migrant caravan, a White House intern attempts to take away his mic, but he keeps it. Watch the video, as filmed by Time, here.
- White House video: Sarah Sanders tweeted this video of the incident, adding, "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video."
